Deakin Business Tutor James
Hi, I'm James! VERY RESPONSIVE
I'm a Deakin student studying Business.
I have a Graduate Certificate in Leadership from Deakin University and plan to progress to a Master of Leadership this year.
Since 2016, I have tutored undergraduate students at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in marketing & PR, leadership, business management, and entrepreneurship & innovation.
In addition to academic teaching, I am the principal consultant for a Brisbane-based corporate training company. To date, I have designed and facilitated more than 200 workshops for corporate clients primarily in leadership and communication skills.
As a tutor, my ability to relate academic theory and concepts to real-world situations comes from experience. This practical knowledge and insight were gained from 20 years in senior executive positions (Asia Pacific region) leading high-performing teams in sales, marketing, and business operations.
My Teaching Style
My aim is to help students improve their thinking. I use reflective questions to expand a student's perspective and to encourage robust and original ideas. Relevant theories and concepts are discussed to test and strengthen propositions and hypotheses. In addition, an appropriate structure for academic writing is discussed to ensure that the student's ideas are communicated effectively.
